4 stars Amazing. This is not a clone of a 1972 RPI album; it IS a 1972 RPI album! I'm talking about the cultural context, not just merely the technical facts. The sound, the words, OK; but also the feelings it arises, the visions it evokes. Only, you can argue, self-conscious, as it's been done 40 years later. Yesterday I heard it for the first time on a night flight watching out the window in the dark, and it's been an amazing listening experience. Imagine something between Le Orme, Quella Vecchia Locanda, Saint Just, Blocco Mentale, with some early PFM sensibility, and you get it. But the some is something different, and more distinctive, than the parts. I'm not going to be discussing it track-by-track. For me it's a 4,5 stars guide. The fiftth star, about which I tend to be parsimonious, will certainly come under these premises. Prog on!
